We loved these!! For the filling we just used the standard pepperoni & mozzarella cheese since that's all I had on hand. But the parmesan, parsley & garlic powder topping makes it awesome! They browned up very nicely and looked restaurant quality. I used dough from an Italian market that makes it fresh every day. Yum! Thanks for posting.
